Tempest Rally

The first driver is demonstrating a poor driving technique over the "yump",

The second car in the air is showing a better driving technique by making the car fly flat.

The technique is always shown to good effect on the 1000 lakes rally. It's similar to a skier "pre-jumping" a jump or terrain change.

I agree they are good, the majority I worked with are excellent.

There is finesse in taking a yump fast which makes the difference between damaging the car and finishing high up the order. The problem with working so long in the industry (being chief designer on 3 rally cars alongside some Paris-Dakar work) is that the detail catches your eyes. It no longer becomes so entertaining when you automatically analyse the vehicles performance.

I have also had the dubious pleasure of being taken round a gravel rally stage by our works driver in a works rally car. It was scary and noisy and bl**dy quick. Mind you the tyres were completely ragged after 5Km of stage.

The pictures are fantastic.
